I just started getting a simple HTPC together....it has been a long time since last
The CPU is AMD 2600+ with a X700 GFX. I installed Mediaportal and ffdshow.
I really like ffdshow, and getting gamma back was priceless!
But ffdshow is too demanding on the CPU for 720p x264(.mkv) files, hitting a
100% on CPU load all the time, and lipsync went out of the window and the
stutter is really bad.
So I heard that I should use coreAVC, and that worked really well. But now gamma is gone in fullscreen. If I run the video in a window I can use the radeon
settings to get gamma, but as soon as the video is in fullscreen, the gamma is
gone. No matter what I do in the radeon settings or powerstrip, I can't get gamma
So please help me get gamma. I can't live without it again!
